Viewpoint Dual Recovery Center was created almost 10 years ago when founder Amy Fackrell noticed a shortage of facilities that treat both mental illness and substance abuse at the same time. Many drug rehab centers or mental health treatment centers were strong in treating one or the other, and many offered 30-day residential options. However, it was difficult to find a center designed specifically for dual diagnosis. Additionally, many facilities didn’t give clinical teams enough time to truly assess, diagnose, and treat clients properly. Seeing this need, Amy decided to redirect her career in law and pursue counseling. Since its inception in 2011, Viewpoint Dual Recovery Center has helped countless individuals struggling to maintain long-term sobriety as a result of underlying mental illness and trauma. Our passion for helping this specific population is the driving force behind our treatment programs, which has transformed the lives of so many.

What Viewpoint Does Differently to Treat Dual Diagnosis
As you learn more about Viewpoint Dual Recovery Center in Arizona, you realize that many things set us apart. These factors include:
Over 40 years of combined experience
Our licensed clinicians treat both mental illness and substance abuse, and continuously educate themselves on best practices and innovative therapeutic methods to treat dual diagnosis clients.
A phased approach to treatment
We tailor each client’s treatment plan to their individual needs and diagnoses. We create a treatment plan immediately with a clinical team of licensed therapists, case managers, social workers, psychiatrists, and psychologists, and reviewed weekly to ensure client success.
All-encompassing clinical programming
Our clinical programming incorporates education, mindfulness, and evidence-based therapies to promote client self-awareness of diagnoses, triggers, strengths, and effective coping strategies to thrive in recovery.
Daily clinical interventions activities, and exercises
Our day-to-day treatment focuses on managing thoughts and feelings, identifying destructive behaviors, and learning how to change and manage them while practicing healthy relationships and respectful communication.
Treatment based on clients’ interests
Education, vocational training, and volunteering which we couple with case management, enabling each client to identify their passions and goals and start achieving them while in treatment.
Evidence-based psychotherapeutic models
We integrate motivational interviewing, dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and somatic experiencing (SE). We weave these through our group therapy and individual sessions focusing on grief and loss, trauma, cross addiction, relapse prevention, relationships, codependency, boundaries, and nutrition and wellness.
Family programs, workshops, and therapeutic sessions
Addiction and mental illness can affect not only the person suffering. It also affects those closest to them. As a result, our clinical team has incorporated therapy sessions and workshops for clients and their support systems.
Life skills training
We teach budgeting, nutrition, medication education, and mindfulness, allowing each client to practice for a successful life outside of treatment. Additionally, we support our clients in every way possible. For example, we help them become gainfully employed or enrolled in school, depending on their needs and goals.
Recovery community exposure, service, participation, and awareness
Clients attend daily recovery community meetings, such as 12-step programs. These help you connect with others struggling with addiction and create a positive sober community support system.
A Proven Approach to Recovery
Effective dual diagnosis programs combine mental health and substance abuse interventions that they tailor for the complex needs of the individuals suffering.
